Re: Letter, “Human rights include rights of women to control their bodies,” Nov. 15, Robert T. Rock.
As a woman, I am deeply concerned that Mr. Rock thinks it should be my right — the right of all women — to take the life of another human being. Human rights include many things, but my human rights end where another’s begin.
Life is inherently valuable — what kind of society would we be if vulnerable members had to prove their worth, independence or wantedness to be allowed to live? Canada is the only country in the western world that has no laws restricting abortion.
We are the ones living in the dark ages, telling women they have to kill their children to be happy and successful in our society.
